What's for Dinner?

Yesterday I did my usual menu planning and grocery shopping but I didn't have to cook last night. Chris and I went to The Melting Pot for our anniversary. It was a really fun experience and the food was delicious! However, now its back to the real world and here is my menu for the rest of the week.

Tuesday - Cubed Steak (cooked in the crock pot), mashed potatoes, green beans - I am taking dinner to a family tonight and this is always one of my favorites because it is really yummy and even my very picky Joshua likes it :)
Wednesday - Baked Flounder (frozen from Sam's Club - very good and easy to fix), short grain brown rice, stir fry veggies (another easy fix and very good - frozen bag from Kroger)
Thursday - Loaded Baked Potato Soup (Cooking Light recipe) and Salad
Friday - Hamburgers, Crock Pot Mac 'n Cheese (this stuff is awesome - probably not so healthy but delicious), and salad
Saturday - Black Bean & Salsa Chicken (this recipe makes a ton so you have lots of leftovers)
Chris likes to have leftovers for lunches so I am sure there will be plenty this week and Sunday will be a leftover day as well. Joshua told me this morning his favorite foods were carrots and chocolate cake so I guess I will have to fit that in somewhere!


  1. So, I'm intrigued by crockpot cube steak. How do you prepare that?

    What recipe do you use for crockpot mac and cheese? I have seen a few on Pinterest...

  2. I will send you a facebook message for both!
